65-82 Wilwood 14" Front Superlite 6-Piston Brake Kit w/GT RotorAs low as $1,619.99
Unsurpassed braking capacity of the Forged Narrow Superlite caliper serves as the base of Wilwoods 1965-1982 Corvette brake kit. Engineered for simplified installation and full compatibility with OE master cylinder output and factory spindle mount. Now you can increase your C2 or C3 Corvettes brake capacity while complimenting the style of custom wheel & tire packages. 2-piece rotors available in GT slotted or SRP drilled & slotted designs. Superlite calipers in your choice of powder coated black or red. Includes detailed instructions for installation. Wilwood's rear brake kits are designed to be used with the factory park brake system.
The Forged Narrow Superlite 4R (FNSL4R) adds the versatility and convenience of radial mounting to Wilwood's widely popular caliper group. Radial mounting simplifies adaptation and provides two planes of adjustment for accurate alignment over the disc. These calipers integrate "Big Brake" style with Wilwood's latest technology to generate big stopping power in extreme environments. The key to the superior performance is extremely durable and efficient body design. Starting at 4.9 pounds, each caliper body is stress-flow forged from premium grade aluminum alloy billets. The four-piston differential bore configuration provides balanced loading for even pad wear in sustained high heat environments. FNSL4R calipers feature one-piece stainless steel pistons. Stainless is used for its slow heat transfer properties and high resistance to corrosion. In addition, each FNSL4R is equipped with SRS bridge plates to eliminate all bridge wear caused by pad gouging and extend the service life of the caliper. The spring-loaded action of the SRS plates also eliminates pad rattle and dampens the harmonic vibrations that contribute to pad squeal. Two piece bleed screws on each end and internal fluid crossovers prevent damage from track debris.
GT aluminum hats are lightweight and strong to manage the exceptional brake torque generated by the Big Brake system. The hats are specially designed for use on OE hubs without modifications or interference to the suspension. Black anodized finish to prevent corrosion and enhance the overall appearance of the complete package.
Large 14" diameter vented iron rotors provide substantial increases in cooling and stopping power over small diameter OE rotors. All Wilwood rotors are manufactured from premium grade, long grain carbon iron to provide long wear with high thermal stability and resistance to distortion. The superior heat absorption and dissipation qualities of a directional vane iron rotor are essential to preventing heat fade and realizing the longest service life from the pads and rotors. The GT rotor kits offer the high-tech look and improved performance of a directional face slot pattern. In addition to their aesthetic appeal, the venting and cleaning action of the slots will reduce pad glaze, dissipate surface heat, and minimize irregular pad build-up on the rotor faces. The results are smoother engagement with improved consistency and response at the pedal. Every GT rotor is treated with a silver zinc wash to reduce corrosion on the areas of the rotor not kept clean by pad contact.
Complete Wilwood brake package includes 4-piston forged billet calipers, 2-piece GT brake rotors, Promatrix brake pads, mounting brackets and hardware.
Note: Wilwood 13 brake rotors require the use of 17 wheels; 14 rotors require 18 wheels. See information online for caliper & wheel dimensions. Want the looks of a Wilwood brake kit without having to upgrade to custom 17 wheels? Consider Wilwood factory D8-4 brake calipers and a set of SRP drilled & slotted rotors.

Since the company’s inception in 1977 by Billy Wood, Willwood has developed a substantial matrix of brake components and engineering techniques that allows them to quickly and reliably create brake systems for almost any application. With headquarters in Camarillo, California, Wilwood employs approximately 250 people. Wilwood's off-shelf brake calipers range in size from tiny calipers used on go-carts and light duty industrial equipment, to heavy duty original equipment brakes for the U.S. military Humvee - and right in the middle, they’re perfect for your Corvette too.
